I would say a fairly scarce badge, worn from the introduction of SD to the point the regiment ceases to exist, you would not find a better example.

I think from the photographs that it could be an original badge, but, certainly not a great example and as Alan says, unlikely to be a 17th.

Just as well it was for nothing, although I am surprised to see a dealer actually giving them away.

It is an other ranks helmet plate circa 1881 to 1901 with a Bedfordshire Regiment centre, the helmets were part of Home Service Full Dress which was withdrawn in September 1914.

Does he really need a tippet badge, to be quite honest if it were me, I think I would, but, cap badges tend to be a little less expensive although not relevant in this particular case.

Yes, many thanks, I mentioned that in post seven, but, you do see this quite a lot with members of the 1st Battalion, something that I had never really thought about until now.

My thoughts remain unchanged, the white metal badges are very common and I would be surprised if this sergeant was not wearing such.

I have to agree, it is a pity that after extra time, in the event of a draw, the match cannot be decided upon the number of cards given, rather than a penalty shootout.

Footy!

Really gutted by the result pf the match at Wembley last night and feel for the last man standing, who was just nineteen I think, but, hopefully they will learn and come back stronger in the future.
